Canberra Cross Country Ski Club
2019 Kosciuszko Tour XC Ski Race – 27th July 2019
The Canberra Cross-Country Ski Club’s 2019 Kosciuszko Tour
All skiers are welcome to participate in the Kosciuszko Tour – from the serious racers to backcountry tourers and those who just want a fun day out touring the beautiful high country.
The 2019 Kosciuszko Tour is on Saturday 27 July. The date of the race has had to be moved to July to avoid clashing with the Australian XC Championships that are being held at Perisher during August. This new date means the race will provide good practice for the subsequent citizen races at Perisher during XC Ski Week in early August.
Time: 10am on 27 July 2019
Location: Start and finish at the Perisher Nordic Shelter. Race route still to be determined.
Approx distance: 18 km.
Separate Classic and Freestyle categories. Freestyle skiers will start 15 minutes after the Classic skiers.
